Horse-Man-Ship Mentality - The Horse Speaks!
So what is the language of the horse?
*They press into what they don't understand.
*They run away from things they don't understand.
*When they're on the defensive they lean.
*When they're in agreement they're straight.
*When they understand what is being asked of them they gladly respond with the least amount of effort.
*They communicate with their eyes, ears, facial expressions, posture, muscle tone and foot placement.
* Horses are highly emotional, they need to express that emotion out through their feet.
* They find comfort in the presence of a qualified leader.
* They will gladly hand over their self preserving intuition to a person that has proven themselves worthy to take responsibility for them.
* Breathing is important to them. Deep breaths express a feeling of acceptance and that all is Okay.
*Holding their breath signifies danger and produces a feeling to flee.
I am sure there are many many more subtle ways that they communicate with each other that most of us are completely unaware of. I think that the better a person can become at reading the horse's language correctly and responding according to what they see and feel, the better things can go between them.
